Due to COVID-19 implications for meeting in Vancouver, the 2020 Annual Meeting has been cancelled.

The Board of Directors and Program Committee are looking at potential virtual options for scientific education. We are also looking at the possibility of postponing some of the content scheduled for 2020 to 2021. We do anticipate having a virtual poster session, so please submit your abstracts and encourage your trainees to present as well. The poster abstract submission deadline has been extended to June 5. We are considering how to handle other aspects of the meeting and will be back in touch with the membership once a plan is in place. 


Review the 2020 Annual Meeting preliminary program here.

This year's program features keynote addresses by Drs. Roshan Cools (Radboud University, Netherlands), John Foxe (University of Rochester), and David Amodio (New York University). See below for more details.

The Presidential Symposium will feature a lineup of leading scientists in the field of Developmental Psychophysiology.

We will be featuring "big ideas" symposia:
     •Psychophysiology and Health (spanning physical and mental health)
     •Psychophysiology Across the Lifespan (spanning early development to aging)
     •Interpersonal Psychophysiology (including social psychophysiology and research on dyads/groups)

Planned pre-conference workshops on Wednesday will cover ERP methodology, digital sign processing, and statistical power analyses.
